Jesus sat down opposite the treasury and observed how the crowd put money into the treasury. Many rich people put in large sums. A poor widow also came and put in two small coins worth a few cents. Calling his disciples to himself, he said to them, "Amen, I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the other contributors to the treasury. For they have all contributed from their surplus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has contributed all she had, her whole livelihood."
OFFERING OF THE DAY
BY ST THERESE
My Lord, I offer You all the actions I did today, for the intentions and the glory of the Sacred Heart of Jesus; I would like to sanctify the beating of my heart, my thoughts and my most simple work by joining them to His most infinite merits, to repair my faults by throwing them in the blaze of His Merciful Love. O my God I ask You for myself and for those I love for the grace to accomplish perfectly Your holy wish, to accept for Your Love the joys and pains of this passage that is life so that one day we can be reunited in Heaven for all eternity.
